Te Ara's whiteboard

Nancy Swarbrick, Te Ara's managing editor, and Janine Faulknor, Reference Group manager, discuss progress on Te Ara, prompted by several aids – Swarbrick's whiteboard, on which she followed every entry from writing, checking, captioning and editing through to final reviewing; her workbook; and her weekly report, which was circulated to every member of the team and tracked progress against the schedule.
